A friend and I both started out on single speed and now are riding fixed. But I've come up against two problems...I'm riding an 08' Fuji Track and find that only after riding for a month or so my knees are constantly sore and two...I can't skid. My gear ratio is a 48:15. Any suggestions on what I can do?
Long story short, go to a larger cog, somewhere in the 17-20 tooth range. You won't go as fast,
sure he will, he just to learn to spin well. I kept up with E-rock on 48:19. yeah, since your knee hurts ride the lowest practical gear until you heal/toughed up, maybe even go back to SS so you can coast down the hills.
